Pixel and Pixel XL are Android mobile phones designed made exclusively by Google. They were announced at a press conference on October 4, 2016, and are the first smartphones in the Google Pixel series of hardware after the Nexus smartphone series. The 2017 Pixel 2, 2018 Pixel 3, 2019 Pixel 4, and 2020 Pixel 5 succeeded smartphones. The pixel uses an aluminum chassis, a glass panel on the back, a USB-C connector, a 3.5 mm headphone jack, and a 12.3-megapixel rear camera.
When released, these devices have some exclusive software features, including Android OS 7.1 “Nougat” update, Google Assistant intelligent personal assistant integration, real-time support services, and unlimited Google backups. Full-pixel, full-resolution photos have received mixed reviews on the performance and camera of these devices, but some commenters pointed out similarities with Apple’s iPhone series in terms of hardware design and criticized the lack of water resistance and high pixels. price.
An earlier “final” specification leak indicated that both Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will be equipped with OLED displays, which is not surprising because Google uses the same display on the affordable Pixel 4a. However, you should know that there is no single type of OLED. An analyst believes that Samsung will provide a rigid version of this panel to reduce Google’s production costs.
This may also mean that Pixel 6 will have a competitive price. The above information shows that not choosing flexible OLED panels can help mobile phone manufacturers save a lot of costs. “Professionals,” Ross Young commented that the use of rigid OLEDs will help save Google from one ton of costs. Even earlier, Young explained that Google was able to use an OLED screen for the Pixel 4a, but still priced it at $349 because it is not a flexible panel. It is also said that using rigid OLED displays in smartphones can save manufacturers a lot of money. Because the cost of each of these panels is one-third of the price of flexible OLED displays. Apple uses more expensive flexible OLEDs because its goal is to provide the smallest possible bezel on its iPhone.
Therefore, one disadvantage of using rigid OLED displays is that Pixel 6 may not look as attractive as its competitors, because Google may not be able to reduce the bezels as it hopes. Customers, helped this advertising giant climb the ladder of the flagship smartphone competition for its high-end mobile phones through competitive pricing.
In terms of design, previous versions indicate that Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will be different from any products released by Google, so reviewers and customers may forgive the larger bezels to get a cool look. Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will use Samsung’s LTPO panel, which will adaptively change the refresh rate to extend battery life. We know that this will significantly increase Google’s production costs, so it may not be possible to use advanced display technology. Both flagships are expected to be released in October this year, so we will learn more in the official announcement.
